Despite its tiny size, the guesthouse still features a fully equipped kitchen, a living room with a sofa and a full-sized table, which can be used for dining, working or as a food prep area, though the kitchen does also feature a full counter.

The stairs that lead up to the sleeping area are a work of art in themselves. They were designed and created by the architect herself, who is a trained furniture maker specializing in items made of wood and steel.

The bedroom features a queen-sized bed, and for storage, the architect installed a wall of drawers that are place in a small passageway leading to the bathroom. To take advantage of as much natural daylight as possible, Azevedo installed a glass landing in this area. Additional storage was installed inside the hinged headboards of the bed.

This is another example of just how much space tiny living can actually offer. It’s also a great example of what can be done if old, disused structures are renovated properly. While the owners of this guesthouse will be renting it out primarily to tourists, it could also easily become a full-time home for a couple.
